of americans hungry, and potentially do some serious damage to our economy. economists have found out that, and projected that every dollar of s.n.a.p. spending generates $1.70 in the local economy and the economic activity in america. this will hurt the revenue of 250,000 grocery stores and supermarkets across the country that accept s.n.a.p. payments. it's a domino effect. once again, house republicans don't care about small businessowners, either. there's a lot of small grocers out there that certainly work with the food stamp program. and you know what? this is a scandal. no, it's not the irs. it's not benghazi. and it's not people losing their health care with these notices that are coming in. this is the scandal. this is the most kicking the least right in the teeth for no reason at all other than unmitigated greed. go back to ted kennedy on the senate floor in 2007. when does the greed stop? i'll answer you tonight. never. they are concerned. these people of faith are concerned about people who make less than $15,000 a year. they're the problem. they're able bodied, they're fat, sit

of the person you damaged. i mean, cruz is getting it both ways. screw up the economy, kill public confidence, then say there's a lack of confidence and the economy's not growing as it could so i'm going to bring economic growth. >> chris, i think there's some validity to that based on the numbers. that same study you were talking about estimated that job growth was diminished by at least 60,000 jobs a month over the last few months. and that's going to continue on into next year. it's not like it's stopped because government is back in operation. it will be a continuing ripple effect over the next year. and as you point out, this whole scenario could start up again in january and february further zapping consumer confidence. that's 2/3 of the economy is consumer spending. it's one reason why there's a growing angry gulf between tea party republicans such as ted cruz and the business community which has been shut out to some extent that wants its way back in here before things get out of hand. >> you know, i was skeptical, david -- i'll get back to you on this howard. there's cruz out there w
